About Green Poha Recipe

Coriander, popularly known as dhania in Indian subcontinent, is an aromatic herb with wide, delicate lacy leaves and a pungent smell. All parts of the plant are edible, but traditionally the fresh leaves and the dried seeds are the parts used most in cooking. So basically coriander is extensively used across various cuisines for flavoring and garnishing as well. The leaves part are often used raw and added to the dish just before serving as heat tends to lessen its flavor rapidly. Coriander is packed with a bunch of health and medicinal benefits. Due to its numerous nutritional values, it is also regarded as Wonder Herb. In Ayurveda, it is often recommended for stomach related ailments as it helps in proper secretion of enzymes and digestive juices in the stomach, stimulates digestion, peristaltic motion and prevents flatulence.
